Why can't I see some of my files in the file tree?

This can happen for a few reasons:

  • If you have a .gitignore file, any files specified by its rules are not shown in the editor.
  • Files within a hidden folder, specified by a name prefaced with '.', aren't shown in the editor.
  • Not all binary files are shown in the file tree. We currently show gif, ico, jpeg, jpg, png, ogg, mp3, wav and pdf files only. We recommend you upload binary files to the project's assets instead where possible.


However, in all of these scenarios the files still exist on your server, so you can still refer to them programmatically.
